Rising to the challenge of physical rehabilitation requires determination, courage and resilience. Together, these strengths make up the very DNA of rehabilitation heroes—patients with a disability who choose to persevere in order to attain a new form of autonomy.
With this in mind, the REA Foundation has created the Rehabilitation Heroes Program to salute the heroism of rehabilitation patients, past and present. This program is an opportunity for their loved ones to submit a testimonial and to make a donation to the REA Foundation in their honour.
Patients and former patients recognized under this program will be among the community of Rehabilitation Heroes. They will be informed of their loved one’s gesture and will receive a pin to confirm their status as Rehabilitation Heroes.
